He ensures that the engineering teams have a full understanding of the needs and requirements for containing various SCP objects, and assists them in designing the proper facilities. He also analyzes the final designs, to insure that these requirements are met.

Psych Profile: Overall, Dr. Severe is a relatively stable individual. He does, however, possess two notable personality quirks. The first is that he has trouble reading a situation and determining when a serious demeanor is called for. He will often make attempts at humor at inappropriate times, and as such should not have any junior researchers assigned to him. His other quirk appears to be a form of obsessive compulsive disorder, in that he can be seen wearing a hard hat at all times while at work, even when eating lunch or attending meetings. When asked about this, he simply replies "better safe than sorry", and refuses to elaborate further. Whether this is a result of past trauma, an attempt at humor, or true paranoia is unknown.
